    beac83 "My safeword is bananna"

    Whatever.

    As long as you treat me decently, I'll call you whatever you want to be called.
    Approach me as if I'm a problem, and I surely will be one for you.

    Dave K DaveK über alles!

    When we meet I’ll treat you the same way you’ve treated me over the years, monkey man.

    Bring it in and (in the words of Buckwild), gimme some love.

    No trotting around the locker room naked together, I’m still a bit puritan for that but if you want to, have all at it. :D

    Approach me as if I’m compelled to bow to anyone’s demands and I too will be a problem.

    Thats how this works.

    Should we meet I shall call you buddy, or pal,
    or chief, or skipper, whichever I'm in the mood for.
    Maybe even partner.

    I can see it if they’re talking about your wives… plural as you’re in Utah… :D but seriously… have you ever had to deal with this ridiculousness?

    Steeltoe being East of the Appalachians in the arts/entertainment I see how some pretentious douches would come through his events but it’s never happened to me…

    I love Utah and Idaho and all the places you can just be… that’s the impression I’ve had about the rural rustic remote west… hope it ever changes…. For all our sakes

    Ummmm yeah, our production team does this too. Luckily the new director doesn’t go along with this nonsense. But there’s some die hard idtios insistent on maintaining the mental defects……….you know…..for the aborted children’s safety

    The irony of a political vegan/pronoun type whining about others is hilarious.

    If they nicely tell me what pronoun they would like, I am happy to use that pronoun for them. I see that no differently than someone named William but prefers being called Bill. If they get all huffy when I use the "wrong" pronoun off the bat, or I accidentally forget when I haven't seen or talked to them in over a year, that will just annoy me, and I will probably try to limit my interaction with them.

    I have had people use my wife's last name for my last name, not knowing they are different. I have had folks add a letter to my last name changing the pronunciation. I don't get mad. Most of the time, I don't even bother correcting them. I know who they are talking about, and that is good enough for me.

    That’s cause you play checkers, not chess.

    The scenario you describe here will never be on the Supreme Courts docket. The more this cancer spreads. The more we all lose.

    Our society is a social contract. In a relatively short time that contract foundationally formed the most successful nation this planet has ever seen. There are many that want to attack it and break it down. Many that leave no legacy that will have to suffer the repercussions of their actions.

    99.8% probability you made this up, with no data collected or analyzed whatsoever.

    And you are sitting at the wrong board. If you want this at the top of your list to worry about that is fine. I have about 100 other things that are messing up this country that are much more important than someone's pronoun. Disliking someone for what they want to be called just adds fuel to the fire that is dividing our nation. That is buying into what the foreign social media bots and power brokers want to do: divide us so they can control and conquer us. Focus on what really matters. We need to learn to disagree without the hate. If we don't, it won't end well.

    Compelled speech isn't good for anyone, and those that advocate for it have no idea where it comes from.

    You assume too much. I don’t have any hate or malice in n my position. I’m just exercising my same Right to my own boundaries. Attempting to compel my speech infringes on the Right. And again. You play checkers. You think there are much bigger problems. This is a cornerstone that holds everything up. At least it was the last time I went to the Archives and read those pieces of parchment.

    But I do enjoy your assumption that an opposing opinion is hate. You perpetuate the stereotypes.
